Egremont has been named
the best market town to
live and work in by the Royal Mail
According to a new study market towns offer a good work-life balance because of affordable homes, good schools and low numbers of people working long hours.
Royal Mail drew up a list of the best market towns to live and work in across the UK.
Egremont was named best in England, Langholm in Scotland, Denbigh in Wales and Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland.
A Royal Mail spokesman said “This new study demonstrates the breadth of market towns providing attractive places for people across the UK to live and work in.
“For people who value a good work-life balance, there are plenty of market towns to choose from.”
The findings were based on average earnings, house prices, access to services, crime figures, skill level of the local population and unemployment figures.
Removal of the weir at Ennerdale mill
to let you know the work on the removal of Ennerdale Mill Weir has started and access to the site is not allowed for health and safety reasons.
The footpath from the allotments along the river is still open but fenced off from the work site (the work site can however still be easily seen from the footpath or the opposite bank).
Site visits can be arranged to the site by the site manager although the correct PPE will need to be warn and a site induction given. If anyone would like further information or to book a site tour (these will be arranged in small groups) please contact myself or Luke Bryant (cc’d).

Egremont Town Council have today completed their commemorative flower display to commemorate the 100th year of the RAF.
The floral display is situated opposite the cemetery and is a wonderful celebration of thanks to the endeavours of the many west Cumbrian officers who have served the RAF over the last century.
The display is the work of the Town council’s very own cemetery care taker – Nelson Shepard. Nelson continues to work wonders for the community and deserves all our gratitude for his amazing work.
